“Dekh Le” – Reminding How Men Look at Women In Public Places

Whistling Woods International (WWI), an institute for studies in film, media and fashion, released a YouTube video on December 16, 2013, exactly a year after the much talked about rape case in Delhi to aware people to think, reflect & act on violence against women. Vinaya Naidu at Lighthouse Insights writes about this video:

Very often, not just in India but all over the world, it seems that men looking at women in public places somehow think they are watching a display, as though women exist on a television screen. But, in reality, women can see the people staring at them, and those stares can make them feel not only uncomfortable and objectified, but downright unsafe.

The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times in last 10 days since its release.
